fluttering curtains / pardah jo hila

fluttering curtains
leaves on still branches
picture perfect clouds
tranquil lotus staring back

pollution, checking sun rays
sky to earth check posts aplenty
rendering landscape, moonscape

moon looking askance
children muffled, muted

then the curtain fluttered
stroked by your smile

life whirled, again

pardah jo hila
shaakhaiN saakit, baadal rukay hu'aye
kanwal tak-taki bandhay dekhay humaiN

fiza may mo'allaq gar'd o ghubaar
shoo'aaON ko youN rokay
kay zameeeN per din maiN chandni
phail ja'aye her soo'

aur chand oos nay bhee rukh moR lya
bachchay bhee sakhtay maiN, khamosh

parday maiN phir hui hal chal
tum aaeeN aur zindagi muskuraee
